more about it. thank you for joining us. let's start with the debt and deficit since this is front and center as far as the international conversation as it may be. the cbo, congressional budget office, came out with new projections this week. they saw, long term, the economy will move in the opposite direction of the deficit. the economy grows if the deficit goes down, it shrinks if the deficit goes up. you argue in the book that the deficit really doesn't matter right now. do you disagree with the government's projections? >> no, i think the cbo report is pretty reasonable. and it says that we wish we had lower debt, and if we look at the long term it would be nice to pay down the debt but it does not show a crisis. and trying to slash the deficit right now will deepen the clear and present danger which is a very high unemployment and ongoing economic slump. so i actually -- i found the cbo report supportive of what i'm saying, that right now our priorities should be jobs and not the deficit. >> i want to get your reaction to something that dave camp told us, the chairman of the

deficits aren't nearly -- they're important but not nearly as important as getting the economy growing now. and that's what i want to do. chris: i'll get back to what you said, david. there is a great chance to get the american people's attention. if he makes an appeal, let's get beyond the zero sum, backettey-back bickering in washington and get some stuff done this year. can he put the republican right, i guess you have to call it the republican right, in a corner? >> if he continues this theme which i think led to his success on the fiscal cliff negotiations, which is to make the republicans the party of no at a time when americans want government to work. and i think that's the way he needs to set it up. i didn't think he did that well in his inaugural address but i think he has another chance here, and if he can make it seem as if, you know, resisting him on finding an alternative to sequestration is being the party of no, the party of the wreckers, i think he's got him in a corner. >> i think if he does go over their heads in congress, which is what he's trying to do on every issue,

down spending. >> i think the mixed picture is as follows. yes, i think more deficit reduction is occurring than most people realize. if the sequester actually occurs or cuts equivalent to the size of the sequester occur, $1.2 trillion over two years, you will have had $3 trillion of deficit reduction done or in the pipelines, and simpson bowles two years ago called for 4.5%. you will have done two thirds of what they said. although if they were sitting here today they would probably call for a higher number. however, it's not being done in the right way. on a balanced way and adequately balanced between revenues and spending and the key to spending restraint over the very long term, entitlement reform is not as mcginnis said, part of the picture. >> alan, your book. let's talk about that for a moment. you argued the t.a.r.p. and the stimulus did their jobs. why and what did we learn from the crisis? >> well, why? we had a very sick financial system, especially a sick banking system. that had to be the first order of priority, even though it was bound to be incredibly unpopular
